STAR WARSY STUFF [2:15]

Anna finished Cobalt Squadron. She liked the connection between Paige and Rose, but it left her feeling sad.

And we’re continuing our watch-through of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Almost done with Phase One!

NEWS [5:20]

Those Game of Thrones guys are going to make some Star Wars movies.

We’re getting multiple new Star Wars TV shows on Disney’s streaming platform, or Disflix, as Liam calls it.

And hoo boy do we have a ton of new Solo information from Entertainment weekly.

Check out those new images we talk about here: http://ew.com/movies/2018/02/07/solo-a-star-wars-story-pictures-deep-dive/

And I’ll post one on here so you can see that comparison between the new and old Falcon.

JOKE [40:50]

We have a couple jokes from Chris from Star Wars Kidscast this week!

Why was Poe Dameron the one to call General Hux?

Why do Fathiers only eat soft, mushy food?

VOICEMAILS [3:35]

Michal sent us a great voicemail where she tells us how to say “May the Force be with you,” in Hebrew! Thanks Michal!

Kat sent us her thoughts on The Last Jedi, which causes us to have all sorts of conversations about the theme of failure, pacing, humor… and even to come up with a theory about the death of Force-ghost Anakin in Episode IX.

STAR WARSY STUFF [29:15]

We saw The Last Jedi for a third time over the break.

The kids had a Star Wars-filled New Years Eve party.

I read The Legends of Luke Skywalker and The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary. I loved one, and didn’t really like the other one.
